Frequently Asked Questions
Why did I receive a postcard from y’all?
We know that you have probably received dozens of postcards offering to buy your house. We can’t speak for the other guys but we mailed to you because you have a house in a neighborhood that we like to buy houses. We mail postcards all across DFW to homeowners offering to give them a fair and transparent cash offer for their home.
What kind of people sell their house to Rise Realty?
Honestly, we have all kinds of people in all kinds of situations sell their house to us. We buy houses that need a to be gutted and fully redone to houses that only need minimal work like paint and carpet. We buy houses from people who need a really quick close to homeowners who want a 4 month close. We have bought houses from seller’s who have inherited a house, going through a divorce, moving to a retirement facility, moving out of state, selling a rental with difficult tenants, and so many more. If you have a situation, chances are we have helped a client with it.
Do you make low-ball offers?
Absolutely not! We run comps in the area to figure out what the house may be worth fixed up, estimate repairs, then give a fair cash offer based on the repairs and repaired market value of the home.
Do I walk away with less money selling my house to a company like yours?
It all depends on the situation. Once you factor in all the costs a seller would incur going the traditional route we are typically able to be very competitive. When comparing the route with a realtor vs a cash offer from Rise its important to take into consideration repairs, holding costs, realtor fees, closing costs, and seller concessions at closing. When considering all those costs we are able to be very competitive on our offer and save the homeowner a lot of time and headaches that come with selling your house on the market.
I have a house that has title issues, can you help?
Absolutely! Our title company works with a ton of sellers where title isn’t straight forward. Our title company we use has the experience needed to handle almost any title issue.
Why is a cash offer so important?
When you are selling your house to a traditional homeowner who is going to live in the property they use a conventional loan to buy the property. A conventional loan is more likely to fall through than cash. The conventional lender could not close the deal because of issues with foundation, structural issues, or a number of other repairs. The conventional loan could also fall through if the buyers financial situation changes during the purchase. A cash offer is not contingent on financial situation, repairs needed, inspections, or appraisals like a conventional loan.
How quickly can you close?
We can close in 3 days if necessary.
If I accept an offer from Rise Realty do we have to close right away?
No. We can push closing out as far as 4 months and in certain situations even further than that. We do our best to meet our clients needs in anyway possible.
